The good thing about the collection is that all the savvy fashionistas out there will be wise to come to Decades and pick up the original inspirations which will be much less expensive than the Slimane-Laurent prices (they are quite high and buyers who have called me to consult on the saleability of the collection are in a quandary: do they buy these expensive clothes that look like they come from Decades?). I liked everything in the collection because it reminds of Decades. Buyers may be confused, but the looks are good looks, they are just looks we have seen worn by folk a lot over the last ten years. Just let me dress you and let's let Mr. Slimane take his time to get his feet wet. I didn't like Ricardo Tisci's first collections at Givenchy. Now I love them! Maria Grazia and Pier Paolo didn't work for me initially at Valentino, but now I think they are doing a splendid job. I guess the lesson to be learned: if you are going to reinvent the wheel with re-branding then the expectation is your collection must follow suit and be ground breaking. I think had Slimane not made such drastic moves and more smoothly transitioned, perhaps the reviews would have been more kind. I am excited to see where he goes for fall. Slimane is super talented and I love wearing his original men's looks for YSL from 1999. I say give him a few seasons, before we throw him under the bus. However, I would suggest Francois Pinault has a talk with the Saint Laurent press team. Sounds like they are amateurs!
In the meanwhile, check out the Slimane and the Yves Saint Laurent Haute Couture original. You choose.
